Craftsmanship. A word that is often tossed around loosely, yet all-too-rarely genuinely explored within the production process of today’s leather goods makers. For New England-based Lotuff Leather, a focus on craftsmanship and handmade quality is paramount to everything — yet they also happen to make some of the better looking Made in America leather goods items around.
For Fall/Winter 2012 the brand has released the Leather Working Tote and Leather Trunk Duffle Bag that coincide with its ethos of functional and long lasting essentials that are as sartorial as they are blue collar. A relatively understated build, the two-handle bags are built from a vegetable tanned leather that has been aged for months and soaked in an assortment of organic elements to create a naturally worn aesthetic. Both the bags are now offered, alongside other staple pieces, directly from the Lotuff Leather online store.
